Travel to Prague

by jlmorgan

Will be in Viernheim next weekend and have two extra travel days. We would like to travel to Prague, but don't know the most cost effective way to do so. I hear there is a nice scenic drive from Mannheim to Prague. Will gas be more expensive than a train ticket, and also, how long will it take to travel?

I'm sorry, I would just love to know the best way for us to make this trip if it is possible. Thanks!

A bit far for just 2 days.
Fastest is by car if you stick to the autobahns. Approx. 5 hours. You'll need a vignette (sticker) to use the Czech autobahns.
The Castle Road runs from Mannheim to Prague. But this is something you should plan a week or so for.

What about places closer to Viernheim? This would cut the travel time and costs. Leaving more time for sightseeing. I guess you have already planned to visit Heidelberg. As touristic as Prague.

VRN public transport network

When built nearly 1000 years ago Speyer cathedral was the biggest church in Europe. UNESCO world heritage. Also a really interesting technical museum there.

W├╝rzburg Residence
Also an UNESCO world heritage.

There are 2 really nice towns close to Viernheim
1. Ladenburg
2. Weinheim

You can buy mini group (2-5 persons) 24-hour tickets. If bought on a Saturday these tickets are valid till Monday 3am.
4-5 zones (e.g. covering Ladenburg, Weinheim, Heidelberg, Mannheim) EUR 13,50
whole VRN area EUR 18,50

Nice is also the Neckar valley with it's castles. E.g. Neckarsteinach
Also some towns in the Odenwald, like Michelstadt, Miltenberg and Amorbach. For such a tour a car will be more practical than public transport.

Forgot: many rental companies won't allow you to drive into the Czech Republic with one of their cars. Also central Prague is a really car unfriendly place.
Also tricky: the autobahn A6 is pretty crowded and prone to traffic jams.

For next weekend you may get one of DBs special offers to Prague. From EUR 39,00 one way Mannheim to Prague. Travel time is 7:50. Route goes via Dresden (a huge detour). The shorter route is however slower.

Travel Tips for Mannheim

Christmas Markets

by tessy

There are 2 christmas markets in Mannheim in Advent.: one is around the water tower. This one is nice, but I prefer the other one on Kapuzinerplanken. There are more craftsmen. What I like most are the Santa Claus made of Chocolate. But you also get them in the chocolate shop, one of my favourite shops in Mannheim.

A place my family enjoys is...

by mrsdouglass

A place my family enjoys is 'Buffalo Park.' That's the name we Americans call it--I don't know what the Germans call it. It's a large wooded area with many biking/walking/horse trails. We like to take our son to many of the large play areas throughout the circuit of trails. My favorite part is the warthog farm. They're just so ugly they're cute...

An international town

by christine.j

After the end of the 30-years war in 17th century, Mannheim was an almost empty place. Prince Elector Karl Ludwig decided, that anyone who was honest was allowed to settle in Mannheim, no matter which nationality or which religion they had. This was an unusually liberal idea for this time and it worked.In the middle of the 17th century German, French,Dutch, Polish people were living in Mannheim.
The picture shows Karl Ludwig welcoming French immigrants to Mannheim.

Mannheim Castle

by christine.j

Since Mannheim is getting ready for a birthday party in 2007, many things are under construction right now or getting thouroughly cleaned. The castle is one of them. It is a large castle, not especially beautiful, just very big. They say it has 400 rooms and 2000 windows, I don't know if it's true. It might well be and certainly the princes in 18th century didn't have to think about who'd clean it.
The building of the castle began in the reign of Charles Philip, who decided to leave Heidelberg after a lot of problems he had there. His successor, Charles Theodore, finished it.
Today the castle houses the university of Mannheim, except for a few rooms in the middle part. There is a small museum , but because of the construction it has been closed for some time now. it is supposed to open again next year, for the anniversary of being a town for 400 years.

Update May 2007:
The outside of the castle is still a mess, construction is going on, visitors have to walk a long way around the yard, partly over dirt and gravel. But at least inside they're finished, they're selling tickets now (unlike in April, even after the official grand opening) and I managed to go and see the new museum.
It's been worth the hassle! While before there were just three rooms with very few items on display, there is now a lot to see. You get audiophones and can walk through the rooms
in your own pace.
Furniture, silverware, paintings, tapestry, everything is explained and gives a great introduction to what life was like at the court. One of my favourites was the blue saloon, in which all the walls are covered by blue damask, another one the music room.

Entrance fee is 5 Euro for adults and 2.50 Euro for children
Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm.

Check out Mannheim

by Natrix

"I like to be here, but don't expect too much..."

Mannheim isn't so much appreciated by tourists compared to close-by Heidelberg although it is quite pretty.
What I really like about Mannheim is that it's so cosmopolitan. You have all sorts of cultural events here and you can get good international food for little money (which you hardly find in Frankfurt...)!
Mannheim is also great for shopping!

The Wasserturm - an old water tower in the centre of town. The giant wheel isn't always there unfortunately....


I went to the Louisenpark with my friend Marion on a sunny day, that was really nice. It's a great place for kids to play or to have a picnic. You also get to see some animals and exotic plants. There's also an authentic Chinese tea house in the park. To enter the park you pay a few Euros, but I thought it was worth it.
